Full Spectrum Buchu Leaf Extract 4:01
Native to the Cape region of South Africa, Buchu is a low shrub harvested for its dried leaves during the flowering season. Swanson Buchu Leaf Extract is perhaps a more exotic herb, but its place in your medicine cabinet will soon turn out to be well-deserved. Since ancient times, this herb has been used for gastrointestinal and urinary tract problems due to its proven beneficial effect on these organs. Try it now and take advantage of nature’s healing force!
Buchu leafs have been used by people indigenous to South Africa for various purposes including stomach problems, rheumatism, and bladder problems. Buchu extract may decrease blood cholesterol levels, mitigate inflammatory processes in the body and may possess a generally protective effect of the cardio vascular system due to its content of diosmin and hesperidin, two powerful polyphenolic compounds with anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer actions.
Buchu is thought to enhance urinary flow and may disinfect the urinary tract by dealing with infections of the bladder, urethra, prostate and kidney. The extract may also be used in treating sexually transmitted diseases. Buch leafs have antiseptic and diuretic actions and are used as a stomach aid and tonic.
Caution should be applied when using Buchu as there may be side effects with higher doses like irritations of the stomach and kidneys and increases in menstrual flow. So only the recommended dose should be supplemented. Pregnant women should not take buchu extracts as they may be associated with miscarriages.
